Beltane Fire Festival Held In Edinburgh
Members of the Beltane Fire Society celebrate the coming of summer by participating in the Beltane Fire Festival on Calton Hill April 30, 2008 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The procession which celebrates the ending of winter is a revival of the ancient Celtic festival of Beltane, the Gaelic name for the month of May. First organized in the mid 1980s the Beltane Fire Festival has become a popular feature of Edinburgh.
